Join us for an evening with Dr. Peter Ross to hear about some of the tiniest “monsters” in our ocean today.
Dr. Peter Ross is the Director of the Ocean Pollution Research Program at Vancouver Aquarium. In more than 25 years of marine pollution research, he pioneered new techniques to evaluate the effects of persistent pollutants on the health of fish and marine mammals, including killer whales, beluga whales, sea otters, harbour seals and salmon. In early 2014, his team discovered widespread distribution of microplastic particles in BC’s coastal waters. He is an international expert in the area of ocean pollution, having published more than 130 scientific articles and book chapters.
